Ratings and Reviews
Originally released in 2000, Final Fantasy IX set a new standard for the series—and it’s still astoundingly impressive. It’s a perfect blend of beloved RPG elements from previous entries and modernized battle encounters. As you make your way through the story’s twists and turns, you’ll encounter unforgettable characters, frighteningly powerful enemies, and a wonderful fantasy world to explore.
Excellent port of an excellent game!
I have not played FF9 in several years and I am very impressed with how well this iOS version performs. I played on an iPhone 7 and this game works surprisingly well on the mobile platform. The touch screen functionality is as good as you could hope for with the UI being slightly modified for the experience. The game didn’t crash a single time during my 48 hour play through so you can tell it was optimized very nicely. The game also has a handy auto save feature every time you enter a new room which is very convenient if you need to put your phone away on a whim. However I highly recommend to still do manual saves just in case you need them. What more is there to say? FF9 is such an amazing adventure and if you haven’t played it yet then go for it!
I’m very sad to give this a low star review. I love all the added quality of life improvements that have been added. The only reason it’s a 1 star is due to the lack of updating it gets and conspiracy from Square Enix. FF9 was my favorite title on the PS1 generation and I love it!! I have been waiting a while to grab it but since it has never gone on sale and I simply love the title I chose to pull the trigger and get it.
Little did I know Square was planning on launching all of their previous FF titles in special bundles. Can’t blame them for that but it brings me to my next point: it almost seems that now that those titles are being released by Square there are no intentions to keep this version updated. It is completely misleading to the consumer to still allow an app to be downloaded/purchased with no intention to maintain its relevance on a new system software. I just recently downloaded this and I can’t even play it now!! I just got to Lindbulm!! These sort of back door tricks should not be allowed on the Apple platform. The least they could do is reach out to the developer to have it updated; if not, remove it from the store. They effectively allow you to pay $20 for a game that can’t even be played on their new OS. Buyers beware.
If they update it or have plans to rectify the situation I will gladly remove my review as I hold the game in incredibly high regard, if not: you’re paying money for something you can’t even play.
